I know, I know. It’s been way too long since my last update. A few things have happened since my last update.
The biggest one being that I started uni again. I was not at all prepared for how stressful this 2nd year would be. I am already stressed out and the 1st semester isn’t even over!
I have been seeing an advisor from the jobcentre re my ESA being over a year so I have been put on a work program. I am doing it through a company called Seetec. It is mandatory and that is stressing me out even more. I have to attend every other monday for 2 hours and job search and do other crap they say I have to do. It is awful. I feel like I am being scrutinsed because I am unable to work. I feel forced into finding a job before I am ready.
I know folk who are on JSA and they don’t have to do anything like what I am having to do with Seetec. It is really annoying.
So yeah, school. It’s tougher that I though. I am doing networking, databases, project management and re-doing programming. Networking was the only optional choice. It is also the only one that I truly like. I am struggling with the coursework and assignments on all the rest. Grrrr.
Today (14 Nov), I had an appointment with Dr B. I had to go to Wisbech as it isn’t on my usual day of seeing him. I had to rush there thinking I would be late – turns out I was an hour early for my appointment. I had to think on my feet so told a porky and said the letter said 13:30 for the appointment (Whoops). He saw me anyway. He asked how things were going, the usual blah blah.
He said that on 30th Sept he made a referral to FCS. I just have to wait and see what they say when they contact me. Tick, tick, tick, tick!
He is trying me on some new medication, so I have to wean myself off the Escitalopram. I have to be off them by Thursday night and then wait 7 days before I can start the new ones. The new ones are called Moclobemide. I haven’t looked this one up yet. I will do this week.
That is about all I have to report on for now.
